Do fleas drink water? :?
I thought they only drank blood, although they do eat other things like dead skin, feathers, hair, etc. They can survive upto one year without food, but only while in a state of hibernation.
New adult fleas can only survive upto a week without blood.

Thanks, I was just wondering. My dog is picking up a bunch right now, but it is peak season.
